Incredible chair design by Fredrik Farg for Materia
here is how they describe the chair in the Materia website.. (which by the way has pretty awesome furniture as a whole)
"The back of the armchair is shaped like a collar, which can be folded to encompass the body and provide shielding. The stand is in moulded veneer, with a seat and back in moulded polyester felt. The construction is bound together using large cufflinks made of die-cast matt chrome zink. The Coat is a unique item of furniture that works perfectly on its own or as part of a group."
pretty cool if you ask me ...
